Jeremy Scahill reports the Obama administration is continuing to
use a notorious military police unit at Guantanamo that regularly brutalizes
unarmed prisoners, including gang-beating them, breaking their bones, gouging
their eyes and dousing them with chemicals. This force, officially known as the
Immediate Reaction Force, has been labeled the "Extreme Repression Force" by

Frauds R' Us: The Scams and Crimes of Wall Street

responsibility for the consequences of their free market fantasies, the gutting
of rules and regulations, and their embrace of a phony "ownership society."
